Once a week there will be a Pittsburgh Pirates Prospects roundup on the minor leaguers in the Pirate’s farm system and their stats. It is July and the stat sheets are filled up at this point.  We have a good judgement on the prospects’ season.

This week is different, as I did not post a round up last week.  Due to the all-star break and other breaks in the minor league schedule I decided to consolidate this article from the last two weeks for this article.

These articles show the top 30 prospect’s main stats for the season thus far.  This will give you an easy and accessible page to view a prospect’s roundup and how they are doing on the year. The hitter stats will include batting average, RBIs, and OPS, some will have home-runs if they are supposed to be power hitting prospects.  Pitcher stats will include  their win-loss record, ERA, and their strike outs to walks on the season.

Some of the site contributors got to together and created this list after putting together a formula that consists of a number of stats, intangibles, and watching film on them. The stats that were used were based on their previous season performance and their career  stat lines.  With that being said, stats make up the bulk of how they are rated. Through this we put the prospects in a tiered system, but for these updates it will be easier to use the traditional 1-30 rankings:
